When fate conspires many things have to happen in just the right order, and at just the right time. In Britain during the early 60s a youth culture revolution was taking place. The austerity of the late 50s was rapidly becoming a distant memory with full employment and the children of the post war baby boom moving into adulthood. The new British youth were divided into primarily two groups, mods and rockers, based on their musical tastes. The mods had formed an allegiance to R&B and British rock bands like The Who and Small Faces; perhaps most significantly they had taken to Jamaican ska. When the psychedelic 60s hit Britain the mods split into a wide variety of fashions and styles including hippies and the skinhead. This period is where the style of the skinhead was first defined. Skinhead fashion was intended to show a pride in the traditional English working class look. The hard mod's who couldn't empathise with the hippie attitude and style got harder, and with a little influence from the Jamaican rude boys the traditional skinhead was born. The musical force in Jamaica during 67 was rocksteady having slowed down from the energetic ska beat that had dominated the Islands output from the early sixties. Ska was flirting with the UK charts with Train To Skaville from The Ethiopians making it to number 40 in September 1967. In 1968 Bunny 'Striker' Lee came to England to meet Dave Betteridge from Island Records and had a chance meeting with the Palmer brothers. He returned to Jamaica with a request to speed up the music making it more appealing to the youth, in particular a new movement that was starting out all over, following on from the Mods. Bunny returned to Jamaica and as he will tell you reggae was born, with the organ shuffle introduced on Bangarang, upping the tempo once again. In 1968 Wet Dream was released and picked up by the emerging skinheads, and along with Israelites and It Meik reggae began charting, now bought in volumes by the skinheads and the

When Music Migrates

Jon Stratton explores the concept of ‘song careers’, referring to how a song is picked up and then transformed by being revisioned by different artists and in different cultural contexts, to examine the ways that music has crossed racial faultlines that have developed in the post-Second World War era as a consequence of the movement of previously colonized peoples to the countries that colonized them. It is this migration of music that will appeal not only to those studying popular music, but also cultural studies and race.

The new third edition of Rough Guide to Reggae is fully updated to cover this latest wave of Jamaican musicians, while not stinting on newly discovered recordings and reissues of classic albums of the past.

These volumes replace the 1933 Supplement to the OED. The vocabulary treated is that which came into use during the publication of the successive sections of the main Dictionary -- that is, between 1884, when the first fascicle of the letter A was published, and 1928, when the final section of the Dictionary appeared -- together with accessions to the English language in Britain and abroad from 1928 to the present day. Nearly all the material in the 1933 Supplement has been retained here, though in revised form (Preface).
